    I don’t believe these people spend all that money only to make a small wage. Maybe the amount they report is smaller then the amount they actually make. I always say that if something doesn’t make sense, then no doubt it’s a lie.

    Can anyone tell me where Richard Tisei has been during all the campaign ads that we have seen on TV during this election season. I have not seen one photo of him with Charlie Baker either on the campaign trail or in the news. Who is this man?

    Thanks for your response.

    Of course they want to work for a small wage…after all, they are doing good for others. Right?
